Power BI for Office 365
Insights and visualizations are better when shared. Power BI excels at
making insights available to everyone who should see them, securing
those reports, and enabling them to be seen from anywhere in the
world:
Data Management – when you create a great query in Excel, you can
share it with others, manage its availability, and see how much it gets
used. With the data management features of Power BI, not only can you
share your own query-creating genius, you can find other queries
easily, too. You’re collaborating from within Excel, and sharing your
efforts online. It’s powerful.
Power BI for Mobile – See the latest reports posted to your Power BI
site from a rich, immersive app on your mobile device.
Power BI Sites – this is the heart of your collaborative Power BI
experience. Quickly create collaborative Power BI sites for your team to
share and view reports. Larger workbook viewing is also supported (up
to 250MB) so that users can view and interact with larger workbooks
through the browser.

Power BI sites for Office 365
Power BI for Office 365 offers the Power BI sites application, which
transforms a SharePoint Online site into a more robust, dynamic
location to share and find Excel workbooks and provides a visual,
interactive view tailored to BI. It also gives you easy access to other BI
features available in Power BI for Office 365.
The Power BI sites app is available when you subscribe to Power BI for
Office 365 Preview. You can apply it to a new or an existing site in
SharePoint Online Enterprise.

Power BI Sites for Office 365
You can see the same workbooks in your standard SharePoint
Documents library and in the Power BI site – the Power BI site is just
another, richer view of those workbooks. If you delete a workbook from
the Power BI site, you’re deleting it from the SharePoint Documents
library, too.
The Power BI site currently only shows Excel workbooks stored on the
site. If you have other files on the site, you can see them in the
SharePoint Documents library, but not in the Power BI site view.

Setup
Register for the Power BI trial at powerbi.com or add the app from the
office app store if you are a current office 365 user. Setup can be a bit
frustrating.
